Sources close to the Smith family revealed to Hollywood Live on August 2, 2022, they fully understand Will’s actions in apologizing. “Jada is proud to finally make the decision to publicly apologize,” the source said. “She felt that, in addition to a written apology, talking about it was the best way to convey the truth to his heart. Will wishes he could get it all back, but he can’t and all he can do is try to heal the wounds from here.” As for how he feels about the apology, the source noted that Will wanted to wait for him. The source continued, “It’s something he suffered because he didn’t want to sound like an insincere or fraudulent excuse.” He needed time to do soul searching and wanted to respond accordingly. Although Will apologizes, he understands that Chris is not ready to accept it at this point. He realized that the slap didn’t just affect Chris, but his career, his family and his friends, it affected every aspect of his life. He will know that he cannot control it; All he can do is try to show how sorry he is and move on.”

His children, Jaden and Willow, have been supporting him since the Oscar slapping incident. “Willow and her brother were in no way seriously involved in what happened, but they received a lot of attention to support their father in the aftermath of the accident, and as a result they suffered a lot of backlash – in their careers and with friends.” “They’re both very proud of their dad and really hope that it starts to heal so that everyone can move on from this and get to the place of love.” In a recent interview with Billboard, Willow opened up about how she really feels about the felt unlucky.”[It] It didn’t shake me as much as my inner demons. “Because of the situation we are in, our humanity is sometimes not accepted, and we are expected to act in a way that is not conducive to a healthy human life and is not conducive to being honest .”

It will release a video on July 29, 2022, as another public apology to Chris. “I reached out to Chris and the message that came back is that he’s not ready to talk and when he is, he’ll reach out to him,” he said in the video. “So I’m going to tell you, Chris, I apologize. My behavior was unacceptable. “I want to apologize to Chris’ mother,” he continued. “I saw an interview that Chris’s mother gave. And that was one of the things I didn’t realize at that moment. I didn’t think about how many people were injured at that moment. So I want to apologize to Chris’ mother. I want to apologize to Chris’ family. Specifically, Tony Rock, we had a great relationship. Tony Rock was my husband. It is most likely irreparable.” He continued: “I have spent the last three months re-imagining and understanding the intricacies and nuances of what happened. I’m not going to try to unpack everything now, but I can tell you, there was no part of me that thought that was the right way to act at that moment.”

According to CNN, Chris subtly shaded Will’s apology into his comedy spot. “Everyone tries to be a lone victim. “If everyone pretends to be a victim, no one will hear the real victims,” Chris said during his set, “I’ve even been slapped by Suge Smith. I went to work the next day, I have children. Anyone who says hurtful words is not punched in the face.”

The Oscar slap happened four months earlier at the Academy Awards on March 27, 2022, after Chris made a joke about Will’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith. The Academy of Motion Picture and Science banned Smith from future events for the next ten years. In an open letter, the Academy announced: “For a period of 10 years commencing April 8, 2022, the Board has determined that Mr. Smith will not be permitted to attend any academic events or programs, in person or physically not, including but not limited to the Academy Awards.” The Academy apologized to Rock, the rest of the Academy and the audience for the time being: “We would like to express our deepest gratitude to Mr. Rock for maintaining his composure under unusual circumstances. We would also like to thank our hosts , nominees, presenters and winners for their perseverance and dexterity during the TV broadcast.” Haddad accepted the ban as he previously resigned from the academy on April 1, 2022.
